Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret; Project 365, Day 74

Why do what you will regret? Why bring tears upon yourself? Do only what you do not regret, And fill yourself with joy. ~Buddha

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.  ~The Buddha

I have no photos I’ve taken that represent regret, I’d rather not go there. I decided to interpret this week’s challenge a bit differently, more in line with my thinking on the subject.

    I like the way you interpreted this weeks challenge. It’s so full of hope and aspirations. Thank you for the quotes by Buddha. Yes, why regret when you can’t change the past anyway. Or even better why do something today you may regret later. We should learn from the past, but not get stuck there and wish things would have been different. A meditative and lovely post.

  7. “Why do what you will regret? Why bring tears upon yourself? Do only what you do not regret, And fill yourself with joy. ” Buddha is truly wise with wisdom that brings happiness. I smiled when you wrote, “I have no photos I’ve taken that represent regret, I’d rather not go there.” There past regrets in my life that I wish never happened but like what Buddha said, “Fill yourself with joy.” I chose not to live in pain, in bitterness but instead embrace peace and joy. God bless you my friend. I’m going home next month….unfortunately only for a month..all well , I should be thankful not complain…

    Beautiful. The ultimate goal we all must aspire to after we’ve mourned our regretful moments … is being Present. I agree. 🙂 Great perspective!

    I’m still thinking about how I want to approach this week’s theme but I really like you’re thinking here. Why take photos of things we regret? Why look backwards? Well Done!

    That is a great philosophy, I am not sure I could be disciplined enough to live in the moment without dreaming of the future.
